Tekhni wraps arrive to you in loomstate, and will need a wash to be ready for use. For cotton wraps, an initial wash in hot water with low spin is recommended with subsequent washes on a gentle cycle with cool water. For Repreve, silk, and tencel wraps, an initial wash in warm water with low spin is recommended with subsequent washes on a gentle cycle with cool water. Use of natural detergents without any optical brighteners, such as Babyganics, will also help keep colors from fading. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners, as these can break down the fibers.
Wraps should be tumble dried on low. Wool dryer balls can help to soften the wrap. Cotton wraps should be pressed with a warm steam iron to reduce wrinkling and soften up after a washing.
Tekhni wraps are made to withstand the rigors of everyday life– however please treat with care to extend the life of the fabric. Remember follow our safety guidelines before using, and always inspect your wraps for signs of wear or damage.
